Make sure that the path on the destination server exists , example

if on the the source you have the data files on D:\ and log files on E:
it is possible that the destination do not have theses drives and the wizard is trying to copy the data and log files to a path that does not exist. Check your path on the destination.

or
You do not have permissions to execute a copy database job. You might need sysadmin permissions on both servers to copy a database.

Why you using the wizard , just backup the database - copy the bak file to the destination then restore.
